Neymar And Four Other Football Players Who Have Suffered Racial Abuse by mantosa(m): 1:43pm On Sep 14
Racism in sports has been the long-term concern of sport governing bodies especially UEFA. The European football governing body keeps placing orders and guidelines every season to curtail the menace among players, fans and sister associations. Every other year, the association trains coaches, fans and players to accept racial differences among all parties involved but racial profiling still continues despite all passive efforts to stop this.

The new football season could have brought excitement to the fans and players, but the cloud of uncertainty that surrounded Ligue 1 holds resentment to officials and executives of the league after the clash between PSG and Olympique Marseille that resulted in 12 yellow cards and 5 red cards. PSG might have lost that game by a goal to nil but the circumstance leading to the fight between home and opposition will live in the eyes of fans all over the world.

The sending off of Neymar raised eyebrows as Marseille’s centre defender Alvaro Gonzalez was fingered out as the perpetrator of that brawl. Neymar reported to the assistant referee on his side of the dugout. This event proves that even Southern Americans are irresistible to racial slurs. No other race has suffered racism more than Africans in football. Taking a knee and flying #BlackLivesMatter is not enough as over the years, racism in Italy, England, France and Spain has escalated in major football countries. Here are some players who have been racially abused in the past:

SAMUEL ETO’O

As one of Africa’s most decorated footballers, the former Cameroonian striker was the target of white fans during his stint at Barcelona C.F., Spain. His horrible experience at Spain only stopped after Barca’s swap deal with Inter Milan for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Eto’o went on to win the UEFA Champions League with Inter Milan.

MARIO BALOTELLI

The talented Italian might have had awful moments with press and managers but having bananas thrown at him by opposition fans in Italy is the worst he could have been subjected to in a turbulent career.

SULLEY MUNTARI

The Ghanaian midfielder did not gain enough support during his experience when his Pescara teammates beckoned on him to return to the pitch after opposition fans lashed racial slurs at him. The nightmare continued when he got banned for reporting the case despite investigations from post-match videos.

ABEBAYO AKINFEWA

The heavily-built British-Nigerian footballer was called ‘BEAST’ by opposition fans last season when he lined up for Wycombe Wanderers FC in England’s lower ties. The incident did not sit well with him as he gained interviews and media features after his experience with racism.

jus too bad and we pray things do change, the FACT about racism in football is what samuel eto once said when asked whats the way out...
he said "racism in football is just like cancer, it maybe controlled bt can NEVA be healed completely..
whenever i remember the likes of lukaku, eto, alves, boateng, balotelli, muntari etc dt are being abused even by thier own fans i do feel bad bcoz they are abused by shallow minded people for following thier passion..
dedicate the f.t.c to all blacks suffering racism all around the world, being black is gold but we must fight against tribalism bcoz dts worst than racism..

Balotelli is a regular victim.

Eto'o and Drogba suffered quite much too.

I doubt Neymar was racially abused in the match Marseille. However, I can't completely conclude.

Blacks shouting racism here and there. At the same times back home, Yoruba calling Igbo(Ipob), Igbo calling Hausa(Aboki), Hausa calling Igbo (Nyamiri) and other derogatory names amongst ourselves. This is the law of KARMA!! I take Tribalist a bigger threat to Racist.

Let's put our houses in order first, MAYBE Europeans might copy us.

We all know Neymar is a diva, but Gonzalez has a history of racial abuse. Spain and Italy are the most racial intolerant countries in Europe, even Russia is better than them

Stop including Neymar ( a hypocrite) as a player that suffered racism.
Here is Neymar's view on racism when he was in South America.
The dude (Neymar) said "it's not like I'm black you know" while saying that there is nothing like racism.

The word racism is a "non-existing" conflict that is only singlehandedly promulgated by the deceitful white skinned race, but an epitome of pride, intolerance, oppression, envy, jealousy and hatred running in their blood streams...

-Chanting no to racism is a sword blunt by deception of the non-existing conflict.. Negroes aren't warring against their race, but we must rise and stand against it!!

We need to embrace the hard truth. Racism in all forms can never be eradicated. As long as we continue having stupid people that think through their asses there will always be racism.

Discrimination based on skin tones and colours has been around right from biblical and other historic times dating to thousands of years ago. It's everywhere, in India you have the caste system, in Malaysia the darker skinned indians are discriminated against, in the middle east the arabs hates blacks with passion, in the west it's the same story.

We all have experienced racism at one point in our lives. I experienced it while doing my Masters. You just have to rise above it all and ignore them same way you regard pestilence like rats. They are very stupid people.
